Head Start With Harcourts

Carissa’s journey in real estate began with Harcourts when she first started as a personal assistant for a top agent and shortly took a chance on going out on her own as a sales consultant.


Coming from a background in event planning that allowed her to meet and work with people from all walks of life, Carissa knew that she wanted to pursue a career where she could connect with people and build relationships.


Within the first 4 months of becoming a Harcourts sales consultant Carissa had two sales under her belt.


“My first sale was on Craigleith Street which received 3 offers with the winning offer belonging to a lovely family. It’s been extremely rewarding to not only work for my vendor and achieve them a great result but also help families get into their dream home.”


“Owen Street was a 2-week deadline sale, we received two offers prior to the deadline which then became a 5-way multi offer on the deadline day. The negotiations began and were wrapped up with an unconditional offer from a fist home buyer being accepted, we got the sold sign up in 15 days after launching it to the market.”


Dunedin is saturated with many real estate agencies, winning over the vendors of these two properties was no easy feat having to go up against some very experienced agent. What won over the sellers was the fact that Carissa asked the right questions, demonstrated her caring nature, and most importantly listened to what the vendor wanted to achieve. All done with a guiding hand from sales managers Ange Copson and Richard Stringer who have been with Carissa every step of the way.


To get results like this you need a supportive team, and the right training. The training at the Harcourts Academy is second to none and equips you with the right tools to move forward. That, coupled with an incredibly supportive team which is not just Harcourts Dunedin but the whole Harcourts Otago team is what sets us apart from the rest.


Carissa now has a section in Portobello, another property under offer and has sold her third listing in St Kilda.


“This was my first time selling a property and Carissa was there every step of the way. She was helpful, knowledgeable, pointed me in the right direction at each step and a pleasure to deal with. She went above and beyond to help us and nothing was too much trouble. I couldn’t have asked for more.” – Vendor of Young Street, St Kilda


Carissa says “Things are moving quicker than I ever imagined and I’m looking forward to helping future vendors to sell, buyers to get their forever homes, and learn with the continuous support from the Harcourts team.”
